I’ve been asking myself that very question. My answer…I have no idea at the moment.
I’ve had writer’s block for months. Any writers out there know what I mean? I feel like I’ve let down my followers; I promise, it has not been intentional.
So what made me sit down and write today? I’ve literally been thinking what is next?
All the healthcare scares going on and so many people not being able to be with loved ones who live in facilities. What’s next for all of these families? I pray this whole pandemic will go away just like the seasonal flu.
None of us has the answer to any of these concerns, but we’ve all been thinking about it.
My main concern is for the people in care facilities, who haven’t been able to be with their loved ones, will decline faster than if they had been allowed to be with their families. And it’s not just the people in the care facilities. The families at home are struggling emotionally from these mandates.
If you have a loved one in a care facility, I would like to hear from you about how you’re able to stay in touch or if you’re able to visit at all. I believe by sharing what you’ve been doing to stay connected with your family members can also be helpful for other people who don’t know how to stay connected to their loved ones. For those people with full blown Alzheimer’s it’s not easy or possible for family members to have phone conversations. So if any of you have suggestions or things you’ve actually done to be near your loved ones, please share.
There has never been a more important time for all of us to come together.
